It was not the first time that Greek pupils have failed to impress, and it won’t be the last as long as the political class insists on attributing their failure to the format of the test rather than the flaws of Greece’s education system.

Greek politicians and unionists are obviously not moved by the fact that Greek pupils lack fundamental skills in meeting the challenges of real life.
